INTRODUCTION

SESSION ONE: SESSION ONE: UNDERSTANDING NAVY INFORMATION DOMINANCE

The continuing Information revolution presents both opportunities and challenges for the US Navy.  The Navy has long enjoyed operating from the information “high ground” employing superior Information-based intelligence and network technologies better and faster than our adversaries. There is an opportunity to extend our existing advantages and to further improve how we collect, process and exploit information well into the future.  Our challenge is to establish, maintain and ensure continued access to critical information and essential command and control (C2) capabilities, especially in high threat, anti-access and area denial scenarios at sea. 

This session will set the scene for the topics, challenges, and goals to be discussed throughout the third Information Dominance Industry Day 

Focus Questions

  • How will the Office of the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Dominance (N2/N6) achieve information dominance into the 21st Century?
  • What are some of the high level challenges to achieving Information Dominance

 

Speaker

RADM David Titley, USN

Assistant Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Dominance

8:45 a.m. – 9:15 a.m. 

SESSION TWO: PRESIDENT'S BUDGET FY-13 OVERVIEW

The current fiscal environment poses many new challenges to the continuing development of Navy Information Dominance.  The Fiscal Year 13 President’s Budget will incorporate deficit reduction measures and will provide an outlook on future budgets for the next five to ten years.  With major cuts already made to the Department of Defense, additional reductions could result in a strategic shift of the Nation’s military capabilities.  This PB FY-13 overview provides context for Information Dominance Day, identifies cuts, and conveys our priorities.

 

Focus Questions:

  • What adjustments to the Information Dominance Strategy are being made as a result of the fiscal environment?
  • Which IDC programs are Navy focusing on?
  • How can Industry partners help the Navy Information Dominance meet these fiscal challenges?
  • What Industry opportunities will develop as part of these potential budget cuts?

SESSION THREE: STRENGTHENING THE INFORMATION INFRASTRUCTURE

To operate and fight effectively in future maritime environments, the Navy is undertaking a number of initiatives to minimize the risk of losing a competitive informational advantage over potential adversaries.  Operations in high-threat scenarios require robust over-the-horizon communications, secure networks and data links, and assured access to essential segments of the electro-magnetic spectrum.  Our worldwide networks, data storage, transport mechanisms, and the related infrastructure and personnel are vital for achievement of Information Dominance and key to delivering a robust Tasking, Collection, Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination (TCPED) process.

Focus Questions:

  • What impact will the new fiscal environment have on Navy networks?
  • How does the Navy address the vast amounts of data collected by increasingly capable ISR platforms?
  • What role does Industry have in the development and protection of the Navy’s Information backbone?

Speaker

NAVY ISR FAMILY OF SYSTEMS: AN INTEGRATED FUTURE

Understanding and exploiting the maritime operating environment is an essential prerequisite to conducting maneuver warfare at sea.  To this end, Navy will improve its ability to conduct responsive, theater-focused end-to-end Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) operations.  The Navy is pursuing a “Family of Systems” that will increased operational access, persistence, flexibility, and information sharing. We aim to develop and acquire new unmanned systems and sensors which will provide new and unique sources of information to support both combat and combat-support missions. 

Focus Questions

  • What is the future of the Navy’s ISR family of systems?
  • What unmanned capabilities is the Navy pursuing and where can Industry help?

Speaker

RDML DeWolfe Miller, USN

Director, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Capabilities Division

12:00 noon – 1:15 p.m.

SESSION FOUR: INTEGRATING INFORMATION IN ALL OPERATIONS

The Navy is strengthening its role as a leader and innovator in the use of information to support all missions outlined in the Naval Operations Concept.  A primary emphasis is on maximizing the value of all available information currently being collected in support of maritime operations in the air, surface, and subsurface domains while ensuring sufficient flexibility exists to fully exploit future Navy, joint, national and coalition sensors currently under development.  The application of combat and operational sensor data, intelligence, oceanography and targeting information is required to execute the full range of maritime missions.

 

Focus Questions:

  • What are the next steps in the Navy’s efforts to integrate information from numerous sources for dynamic targeting?
  • How does the Navy take advantage of commercial technology for delivering assured command and control?
  • How can automatic baselining help “make-sense” of the vast amounts of data collected in 21st Century warfare?
  • How can the Navy capitalize on industry technology advancements while minimizing operational impacts and investment costs?

Speaker

RDML Jan Tighe, USN

Director, Decision Superiority

2:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

SESSION FIVE: EMPLOYING NON-KINETIC FIRES

In addition to using information to maximize support to traditional maritime missions, Navy is moving to employ information itself as a weapon.  Information as warfare is expected to deliver expanded maneuver space for our forces, provide expanded operational and strategic options, and amplify Navy current kinetic combat capabilities.  This includes the direct employment of advanced electronic warfare and cyber capabilities for achieving specific operational effects within the battlespace.

 

Focus Questions:

  • How will Navy cyber operations compliment existing war fighting capabilities?
  • What role will non-kinetic cyber warfare have in future operations?
  • How can industry help the Navy modernize the navy’s electronic warfare capability?
  • In the current fiscal environment, how is the Navy pursing rapidly developing technological capabilities in electronic warfare and cyber operations?
